Beloved, it is a faithful saying that the truth shall remain the same. It can not be changed or modified.

Jn 8:32  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

2Co 13:8  For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.

 It is pertinent then for you  in particular to accept and abide by the  established unchangeable truth for your earthly and eternal well-being.
Remember this biblical truth, God is no respecter of persons. Until you come to terms with His eternal infallible unchanging truth on conditions for answering  prayers, access to Him becomes unattainable.

Act 10:34 — 35  Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

Rom 2:8 — 11  But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: For there is no respect of persons with God.

Romans 10:12  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

Beloved, the truth you must come to terms with is the fact that from the very outset of creation until everything shall ultimately come to an end at the end of time, the conditions for answering prayers for all and sundry with God remains the same. See it yourself.

1 John 3:22  And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

This same condition was met by our Lord Jesus Christ, during His earthly ministry.  This was the basis for His answered prayers with His Father.

Jn 8:28 — 29  Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.

Beloved  it is true, that  the Bible is filled with innumerable promises on answered prayers, but the conditions remains unchanged to everyone, irrespective of race in every dispensation.
Don’t ever forget this. See some promises you can count on for your prayers to be answered, once you meet the requisites.

Psalms 10:17  Lord, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:

Psa 34:4 — 6  I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and  delivered me from all my fears.  They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him,and saved him out of all his troubles.

Psa 34:15 — 17 The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

Psalms 50:15  And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

Psa 145:18 — 19 The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.

Proverbs 15:29  The Lord is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.

Isaiah 65:24  And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

Jer 29:12 — 13 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Jeremiah 33:3  Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

However, when anyone and everyone in every race and every dispensation fails to meet the requisites for answering prayers, then there comes impregnable brick wall between the person and God.  This shall not be your portion in Jesus name.

Isa 59:1 — 2  Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

Psalms 66:18  If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:

Proverbs 28:9  He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law,

even his prayer shall be abomination.

John 9:31  Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth

The Bible enjoins you to always come boldly to the throne of grace , once you have met the conditions for answering  prayers. I am persuaded that you have met these conditions, so reach out joyfully to God at all times and receive answers to your prayers.

Hebrews 4:16  Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Dearly beloved, our Lord Jesus Christ encouraged believers of all ages and you in particular to pray to your loving Father in heaven. He is the Father of our Lord and your own Father too.
If He has no reason to deny the prayers of our Lord for once. Then you can be assured that you too have the same privilege with Him,

Jn 20:17  Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

See the conditions Jesus met for our Father in heaven to be answering His prayer.  Meet the same conditions and you too shall enjoy same undeniable privilege from your loving Father in heaven.

Heb 5:7 — 8  Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

1 John 3:22  And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

Once you determinedly continue to be obedient to God like Jesus in all things and at all times, then no power of hell can hinder your prayers, as they did with Daniel.
See how our Lord assures every believers in all ages . See some of His inexhaustible unfailing and unchanging promises on answered prayers.

Mat 7:7 — 11  Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

Matthew 21:22  And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Mark 11:24  Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Luk 11:9 — 13  And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

John 14:13  And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

Jn 16:23 — 24  And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

Dearly beloved the blessed Holy Spirit affirms same. See some of them.

James 1:5  If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

1Jo 5:14 — 15  And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

So what are you waiting for , as obedient child, come now to your Father in heaven and get your prayers answered. It shall be so in Jesus name amen.
 Friend, praise God for your persuasion that the rapture is dawning. In the name of Jesus, it shall not elude you in particular in Jesus name.
One thing that can guarantee and secure your preparedness every time is to be . meeting the conditions for your prayers not to be denied in heaven. It shall not be in Jesus name.

1 John 3:22  And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

This becomes necessary because the Bible confirms this great event is imminent but participants must be watching unto prayers.

1Pe 4:7  But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

Jud 1:20 — 21  But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

Friend the reason why you are doing so is to make your prayers effectual and  check the wiles and the incessant  attacks  of the devil .
They shall fail abysmally concerning you in particular in Jesus name. So like our Lord ensure you can get the attention of heaven at all times and put satan under your feet always.

John 15:7  If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

James 5:16  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Romans 16:20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
